They carry back bright to the coiner the mintage of man, / The lads that will die in their glory and never be old.
A. E. Housman quote
I see an extremely promotional shopping environment. I've advised my retail clients to be super aggressive Thanksgiving weekend. Retailers don't want to do it from a margin perspective, but otherwise they won't see shoppers in stores. Consumers have less money to spend and they'll take their 'less money' elsewhere.
